The project entails cushioning 285 children of the Makonjemare school from the adverse effects of Covid 19 now that they are not in school since March 2020. For the last 4 years, children relied on the school feeding to get a meal so closure of the school meant many children going hungry.
Activities that will be undertaken under this project include
- School feeding
- Learning how to properly wash hands with soap and water
- Erection of “talking” boards that communicate special messages about Covid 19 and how to keep safe
- Expansion of the school farm to enable the school plant more food for the children for future self reliance
- Provision of masks
For the third week now, the children have been coming to school and are excited about the project as they have a meal for the say.
While learning has been disrupted in schools in Kenya due to Covid-19 pandemic, we shall overcome. Children long to go back to school to learn as education is the answer and we are hopeful this shall come to pass
